Neighbours SPOILER: Susan Kennedy comes face to face with love rival Izzy Hoyland TONIGHT

Or should that be face-to-bumper?

The soap veteran, played by Jackie Woodburne, accidentally runs into a woman with her car in the aptly named 'Hit and Run' episode, and that woman turns out to be Izzy Hoyland - the floozy who broke up Susan's marriage to Karl over a decade ago.

The accident happens as Ramsay Street residents past and present gather to celebrate Toadie's belated 21st birthday.

The party - being held because Toadie didn't get a 21st back in the 90s - has a 90s theme, which is why Izzy is dressed as a Spice Girl.

Jackie spoke exclusively to Entertainment Daily! about Susan coming face to face with her arch enemy for the first time in over ten years.

"It’s not so much she comes face to face with Izzy, more face to bumper bar," Jackie laughs. "When I read that I just thought that was fantastic!

"It was a tiny little bump but of course Isabelle being Isabelle played it as though Susan was trying to kill her.

"And what a great entrance, dressed up as a Spice Girl.

"You couldn’t get much more glamorous than that, so it’s a wonderful entrance for Izzy to make."

Izzy is kind of her anti-Christ. She pushes all those buttons in Susan that bring out the absolute worst in her.

Izzy - played by Natalie Bassingthwaighte - was the bad girl that viewers loved to hate when she starred in the soap between 2003 and 2007.

As well as bedding Dr. Karl, she also had a relationship with Paul Robinson, so her return will raise more than a few eyebrows.

Jackie went on to say that Izzy's return was another chance for Susan to ditch her super-nice image.

She said: "When she [Susan] got out of the car and saw Isabelle Hoyland lying on the ground her whole life would have flashed before her eyes.

"Izzy is kind of her anti-Christ. She pushes all those buttons in Susan that bring out the absolute worst in her.

"She’s the only person that Susan could cheerfully strangle.

"She’s someone who Susan is horrible to, and mean, which of course is great fun to play because Susan is a nice woman so to get someone who Susan can unleash her inner demons, I think that’s great."
